The following is a list of additional Requirements & Assumptions concerning the use of MO Receipt Integration.
- No imported Bill of Materials contains the Parent Item as a Component
- Phantoms are not used in the MOPick table. They may be used if components are not imported through the MOPick table.
- A Default Scheduling Preference must be set in the MO Scheduled Preferences setup window.
- Actual Cost Components are not used in the manufacturing process for a Standard Cost Finished Good.
- Routings do not have Outsourced Sequences (no outside processing)
- Outsourcing is allowed if integrating a single receipt
- Outsourcing is not allowed if integrating partial receipts
- WIP data collection has not been recorded
- WIP Data Collection is allowed if integrating a single receipt
- WIP Data Collection is not allowed if integrating partial receipts
- All Components and Subassemblies are set to backflush
- Serial/Lot Linking is not supported
Allocate On Release

If MO partial receipts will be recorded against existing MOs, those MOs must not have any activity recorded against them. The MOs can be created and released inside GP, but no other processing on the MO should be recorded in GP. If Allocate On Release is enabled, releasing the MO in GP will create an “Allocate” transaction in Manufacturing Component Transaction Entry, which will prevent MORI from creating and posting a receipt.
When MORI creates its own MOs during an MO Receipt, it will always act as-if the Allocate On Release box is not marked. If your integration will not be posting receipts for existing MOs, the Allocate On Release setting will not affect MORI because MORI will override it when the MO is created and inventory will not be allocated when it releases the MO.
Allocate On Release is allowed when integrating single receipts. In this case inventory can be allocated when the MO is released, everything is recorded in an external system, and when manufacturing is complete, a single receipt is integrated into the system.

MORI requires that Adjustment Overrides is set to TRUE (checkbox is marked). The reason for this is that since production was recorded in an external system, there must have been enough inventory to produce it. If there is a component shortage in GP, the inventory count in GP must be inaccurate. Rather than cause the integration to reject valid import records, MORI overrides the inventory count in GP so that production can be recorded.
Generally, it is preferable to NOT allow Adjustment or Variance overrides because it can create negative On Hand inventory quantities. However, since MORI requires the ability to override shortages, you should closely watch for negative inventory counts and quickly remedy the situation by conducting a physical count of the affect items(s) and adjusting the quantities in GP.
